Associate Art Director Sean Marino said that the developers went back and forth on adding the voice-overs in the skin line because they were not sure it was possible. They decided to delay the skin until it was more feasible. After the developers developed the backstory for Protocol 781-A with the company's narrative writer, they determined that the Voice-overs should feel controlling, robotic, strict, demanding, and cold.

Sean Marino continued by saying that there are over 60 unique voice-over lines. They went back and forth for which languages for the skin to use or if they should use a universal language or localize it. They decided to go for localization which resulted in over 13 unique languages so that players could enjoy the skin in their region's language.
